Followers of the Brexit vs UK Aviation Industry saga may be interested in this article about a proposal to extend Type Certificates of UK aircraft by 9 months, ie until the end for 2019. This has been referred to already in this thread, but it gives a slightly different angle.

Interestingly, it seems that the EU Commission/EASA is taking the lead in rescuing the UK from the disaster it has created for itself, probably because the UK CAA as presently constituted and managed couldn't run an FBO in the Outer Hebrides. (I heard a detailed and horrendous tale yesterday about the incompetence, attitude and behaviour of a Surveyor, over the last 2 months. Unfortunately such tales are now commonplace.)
